In the Netherlands there is an on-going process of restructuring education. Secondary education is nowbeing restructured into a basic level (the first two/three years) and an upper level (the last two/threeyears). The leading idea behind the upper level is the so-called 'study home' concept. The intention isthat the learners become 'successful independent constructors' of their own study processes instead of'successful dependent victims' of presented instruction. The first secondary schools start in 1996-1997with their 'study home' and educational publishers are working on new appropriate study books in orderto make the 'study-home' concept a success. To reach for success, publishers consider the use ofeducational software as an integral part of these new study books. Such educational software is expectedto make use of the rapid evolving technologies like hypermedia and the Internet.
